Naples Grande Golf Club Unveils $8 Million Transformation

Naples Grande Golf Club Unveils $8 Million Transformation
The grand makeover includes a brand new clubhouse, which is the first formal building of its kind for the club, as well as a complete regrass of the golf course with celebration Bermuda grass and leveling and expanding tees. Bridging the gap between modern and traditional design, the new clubhouse offers a grill and bar area, men's and women's locker rooms, meeting space, retail space, as well as more functional outdoor space, sight lines, and more.

Highly-acclaimed and designed by Rees Jones, the 18-hole, 6,955-yard, par 72 course is located just minutes from Naples Grande Beach Resort and is set among a lush landscape of native Florida pine hammocks, live oak, grand cypress trees, and brilliant water. ClubDesign Associates from Fort Worth, Texas were the team behind the design and aesthetic elements. The overall design scheme can be described as coastal contemporary. Starting from the inside out, a blue/green color scheme was chosen to bring the outside indoors by enhancing the views of the lake and golf course. The light and medium colors selected for the fabrics, carpets and artwork pop against the warm neutral background and preserve the airy coastal feel. The rich woods of the furniture, cabinetry and ceiling beams along with the natural light and clean lines bring warmth and a sense of casual elegance to the space.

“For ownership to reinvest into the golf club is paramount to our success in member retention & enjoyment,” said Michael Brooks, General Manager, Naples Grande Golf Club. He continued, “The addition of our new clubhouse is key to our ongoing success as it provides members and resort guests with a world-class experience.”

Naples Grande Golf Club's membership program is called the Premier Club of Naples, designed to offer members and their families world-class golf as well as recreational activities. Members have access to Naples Grande Beach Resort's three signature pools, sugar sand beach, fitness center, as well as exclusive access to the resort's tennis courts and four restaurants. Members are also given the option to enjoy a range of social events all year round including member-only minglers and unique local experiences. Although the club is a members-only establishment, guests of Naples Grande Beach Resort have the privilege of an exclusive membership during their stay.

Surrounded by captivating views, the wall of folding glass doors in the grill and bar makes a statement and infuses the room with fresh air, natural light and breathtaking sight lines of the lake. Adding to the openness of the space, high ceilings are accented by large coffers and stained-wood ceiling beams. There are several stained-wood dining tables of varying sizes that further add to the flexibility and possibilities of the room. The carpet pattern has varying shades of a warm, gray stripe with medallion patterns in blue, and the dining arm chairs have clean, classic lines with upholstery in shades of blue and green. The two custom-designed, communal tables are a highlight of the bar, each seating 10. The tables are equipped with power and data outlets to let patrons stay connected while at the club. The custom, 20' long bar is another great gathering spot. It features a beautiful blue pearl granite top and stained-wood panels on the front with linear glass mosaic tile. Visitors can also take advantage of the 50” TVs at the back of the bar. Overall, the grill and bar can seat 110 patrons. An extension of the grill, the outdoor patio can seat an additional 48 guests and offers relaxing and comfortable options as it overlooks the lake. Chef Chris Capron oversees the food and beverage program for the venue. Notable dishes include Blackened Fish Tacos and Grande Grilled Cheese.

From the meeting spaces to the men's and women's locker rooms and lounges, these recreational areas were created to exude functionality, but with a modern and stylish atmosphere. Guests utilizing the meeting rooms have the ability to transform the space with ease, whether they are conducting a business meeting, luncheon or private event, the flexibility of the furnishings help with easy transition from one event to the next. The women's locker room and lounge contains 158 stained-wood half lockers with shaker panel doors. A built-in cabinet with towel drop, as well as several framed, full-length mirrors add custom touches to the space. The lounge has a feminine feel with an organic leaf pattern carpet and lighter colors of blue, gray and cream. Lounge furnishings, including a sofa and lounge chair, are in soft, woven fabrics with blue and cream. Zebra print sofa pillows add a sophisticated, fresh touch. The lounge also offers three stained-wood tables and arm chairs for card playing and other social activities. The men's locker room and lounge contains 240 stained-wood half lockers and 117 three-compartment lockers with shaker panel doors. Additionally, there are three built-in cabinets with towel drop and four framed, full-length mirrors. The lounge features a clean, refined, and comfortable look. It is outfitted with three stained-wood tables and wood arm chairs with seating as well as six lounge chairs in a U-shaped layout surrounding two flat screen wall-mounted TVs.

The millwork was custom designed for Naples Grande Pro Shop. The Pro Shop is another room that brings the outdoors in with large windows overlooking the golf course. An architectural feature of note is the raised ceiling vault with wood beams and a pendant light. Lounge seating is provided in front of the 55” flat screen TV. Carpet, granite, and chair fabric were kept neutral to emphasize the merchandise. The stained-wood transaction counter has a granite top, raised front panel design, sleeves for golf balls, and glove display behind the counter.
